The Penstemon on Strawberry Mountain were not yet in flower. We had a very cool wet June here in the Pacific Northwest which affected both snowmelt and flowering times. Today we were in the North Cascades and some Anemone occidentalis were in flower where the snow had recently melted. I had never previously seen it in flower in August.
